Any NEW DCT recalls?

I just got an email and call from my dealership asking me to bring in my 2011 e90 M3 (~April 2010 build) for a DCT recall. I haven't gone in yet so I don't know the specific service bulletin. Anyone have any idea? Is this just another software update?

It's probably the software update everyone got in Aug/Sept. No biggie - makes DCT dam near perfect.

Talked with SA late today. THey said it was a software update. I am not sure why it took them this long to contact me, while calling this a recall in their message. Oh well. Look forward to getting my M back--the 328 loaner sucks.

LOL! I am much happier today getting my own M back. Night and day difference with a 328. I thought the loaner was broken when I floored the accelerator and nothing happened You can never substitute for gobs of V8 horsepower!

better than a KIA loaner.... some will get a rental from herts or enterprise. plus...

everytime i get my car serviced or serviced for some issue i sometimes wish that they will hold it for months. haha....

when they changed my transmission took them 2 months. i told them no worries take your time...

ever notice when you get in the loaner for the first time leaving the dealer that you automatically lean forward to counteract the G force of the M? Something you unconsciously do until you are in a car that doesn't pull you back and you realize that you do it and have to force yourself to stop it for awhile.
